Academic criteria            
Applications are invited from exceptional candidates with a first class or strong upper second class honours degree, or appropriate Master’s degree. The University values diversity and equality at all levels and encourages applications from all sections of the community. We welcome applications for both full and part-time study, and studentships are available as either ‘1+3’ (i.e. one full time year of research training Masters followed by three years of full-time Doctoral study, or the part-time equivalent), or ‘+3’ (i.e. three years of full-time doctoral study or its part-time equivalent), depending on the needs of the applicant.

To be eligible for a full award (stipend and fees), you must:

  • have settled status in the UK, meaning there are no restrictions on how long you can stay
  • have been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for three years prior to the start of the studentship grant. This means you must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences)
  • not have been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education. This does not apply to UK and EU nationals

To be eligible for a fees-only award, you must: 

  • be ordinarily resident in an EU member state, in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK
